Netherlands have a named a squad with a clear focus on youth

Nepal will host Netherlands and Malaysia for a triangular T20I series, scheduled for April 17 to 24. The three teams will play each other twice, before the top two meet in the final. All games are going to be hosted at the Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground in Kirtipur.

A statement issued by the Dutch cricket federation, the KNCB, said the decision to give the series the all-clear was taken “following the reduction in Covid cases and resumption of domestic competitions since December 2020” in Nepal. The players and match officials will remain in a bio-secure bubble, the statement added. The Malaysian Cricket Association (MCA), said in a statement of its own that its squad “will be travelling in compliance with the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) required in both Nepal and Malaysia”.

Mahmudullah on the positive side of biosecure bubbles: “You can spend more time with your team-mates, discuss plans and strategies”

No Tamim Iqbal, no Liton Das and no Mushfiqur Rahim. Bangladesh’s plans of putting it past a depleted Australia side in what is the first bilateral T20I series between the two teams have been impacted by the absence of three key batters, but they are particularly unhappy about Rahim missing out, because it’s been caused by Australia’s “stringent” demands when it comes to the biosecure bubble for the series. A day after Russell Domingo, the coach, expressed his displeasure on the matter, captain Mahmudullah, too, said he was “very disappointed” but his focus was on the series and what he and the other players could control.

James Harris heads back to Glamorgan for 2022 after agreeing Middlesex exit

Lions seamer returns to home county after nine seasons at Lord’s

James Harris, the seam-bowling allrounder, will leave Middlesex at the end of the season to return to his boyhood club Glamorgan on a three-year deal.

Harris, 31, is a product of Glamorgan’s youth system and made his first-class debut for the club as a 16-year-old back in 2007. He was long considered to be a future England international, having been on several Lions tours early in his career, and several counties were interested in signing him when he left the club in 2012.

He eventually decided to join Middlesex, but has had two spells back at Glamorgan on loan and struggled for consistency during his early years at the club after attempting to add a yard of pace in order to put himself into England contention.

His form returned in 2015, when he took 69 Division One wickets at 25.74 to take Middlesex to second, and while his average doubled the following summer, he played seven games in their Championship-winning season.

He developed his batting over the next few seasons, scoring his first professional hundred in the 2019 Royal London Cup, but struggled to nail down a regular spot in the side across formats. He has also developed his career off-field, becoming the PCA’s chairman earlier this year.

“I always saw myself one day returning to Glamorgan, and this this is the perfect time for me to do so, and I am excited for the next chapter in my cricket career,” Harris said. “I still believe I have a lot to offer on the pitch and I want to use my experience to assist the younger players and help us push for silverware.”

Mark Wallace, Glamorgan’s director of cricket, said: “From the moment James left, we’ve wanted to re-sign him. He’s a fantastic acquisition for the club. He’s a high-class seam bowler, a strong lower-order batsmen and a great voice in the dressing room given his leadership experience.”
